intrangedent. joining us tonight is jake sherman, the congressional core -- coarse upon independent for political. what does it mean for next week? will they get a deal? >> house republicans are saying they are not going to increase rates. they don't have the votes to do so so they are going to go to the white house, but john boehner even said recently this is going to be long talks. is the first round of negotiations after the election but what is important to keep is mind is that john boehner has already back pedalled from where he was in 2011. he wasn't even willing to entertain the revenues he is willing to entertain in 2011. if you remember in 2011 when things looked like they were getting done the meetings were secret. >> jennifer: so in fact i want you to listen to a sound bite from house speaker john boehner this morning. >> the members of our majority understand how important it is to avert the fiscal cliff, and that's why i outlined a responsible path forward, paving the way for entitlement reform as well as tax reform with lower rates. >> jennifer: so

could give us a quick reply. guest: the long-term future of the country will depend on a lot of things. the u.s. is taking a lot of steps right now to right the ship. labor may be one of them. taxation may be one of them. there are some estimates that we can be energy self-sufficient in the next 30, 40 years, so maybe that helps. this is a very complex issue. it has to be resolved. there has to be a happy medium there. whether or not it is because these ceos are boring abroad for certain things or not, that is up for debate. i'm certainly not one who will take a position on that because i don't know enough about it to make that call. there are a lot of very smart people out there, who we should respect, they are very good at what they do and they are still debating about what the proper solutions to this is. all right now, this is why we're seeing such a huge amount of debate going on in d.c. and in board rooms across the country. washington, d.c. host: there have been reports that secretary geithner will play a role in these talks. guest: the economic team is in place right now. this

. they also released the menu of what they were eating. but give us the substance. >> that's right. turkey chili was on the menu. perhaps thanksgiving leftovers. i talked to a republican source who said this was a friendly meeting between the president and mitt romney. but mitt romney slipped in and out of washington so quickly and quietly that it was a sign that he was ready to accept the president's offer to show bipartisanship but not quite ready to jump back on the national stage. it seems the most unexpected moment of the day came as mitt romney's vehicle arrived at the white house as a window was rolled down, an unknown man approached the vehicle and started shouting. until he was whisked away by the secret service. still, the ever punctual romney was right on time for his private lunch with the president. and be private, the white house means just that. no reporters. >> any chance your briefing might be interrupted by a joint appearance? >> no. >> we've seen other presidents and those that they've defeated in presidential election contests together. why not something for historical

"outfront" tonight, markets tanked. the day after president obama wins a second term, the dow has its worst day in a year. the dow finished the day down nearly 313 points. for the first time in three months, it closed below 13,000 and when you look at the broader markets, all were down 2.5%, so is the election really to blame?

. u.s. equity futures should be interesting to look at temperature basically on hold. not sure what to do after yesterday. we'll talk more about the economy in a minute with david rosenburg. it was pretty clear yesterday that depending on how you wanted to spin it, could you say how do you do for another four years. i don't remember any euro news in the last six months no matter how bad it was, we didn't get it free handle. so there's more to it than just europe. >> it was the fiscal cliff, but also the financials got hit so hard. if it had been romney, the cliff would be less of a deal because they would stepped all of them. so now we know and we lettered it first hand yesterday. boehner said we're open to tax increase, but part of a bigger plan that involves spending cuts. dove did a bungee -- >> worst thing i ever did. >> but it goes down and then right back up. >> the worst part is you feel like you're connected on something, but don't. it's a free fall until the very he said and then he start to feel like i'm connected to something and it throws being back into the air. >> my q
class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us now from capitol hill with the very latest. what happened today, dana? >> reporter: wolf, it was one thing for susan rice to be criticized harshly yesterday by the three republicans she met with because they had been among her harshest c
, takeovers at military bases given them a new arsenal of heavy weaponry. in this attack, they used rockets and as cnn's arwa damon reports, the rebels claiming this as a major victory. >> reporter: children on the back of a tractor made off with a sizable tangled lump of metal. what was all too often the cause of nightmares now a trophy of war. proudly shown off by this man. we want to take these pieces to show them to the other villages, he says. let them see what happened to these planes. everyone we speak to here describes the fear they felt any time they heard a jet overhead. for them, this is the greatest victory. one man who we spoke to said he was picking olives, saw the plane being hit and the two pilots ejecting. he says at that point everyone fanned out looking for them. he and others are telling us that one pilot was found unconscious with a head injury. video posted to youtube shows a man in military uniform seemingly unconscious being carried away. as a man offcamera states, here is the pilot who was shelling the houses of civilians. another clip is of him in a makeshift field
a reporter tell me how this ends. he got the nickname king david used by supporters and to those that labelled him a celebrity general. in swechb, president bush appointed petraeus to lead all troops in iraq. he rewrote the field manual and his ideas became known as the p petraeus doctrine. obama tapped general petraeus as the man to save the afghan war effort. >> it has again been the greatest of honors to serve here. >> because of his name recognition among the american people, he was surrounded by speculation that he had political ambitions. some wondered if he would appear on the republican presidential ticket, but he knocked down those rumors. >> we're not out there running a political campaign, we're running a war. >> at a senate confirmation hearing to head the cia, he admitted that president obama decided to withdraw thousands of troops significantly faster than petraeus wanted. >> the ultimate decision was a more aggressive formulation, if you will, in terms of the timeline than what we had recommended. >> petraeus' wife, holly, sat behind him in that testimony, and he p

of the first to brief law makers followinglet u.s. mission in libya. katherine herage has the latest. >> in the white house, jay carny pushed back on allegations that the administration was not forth coming on the benghazi attack. specifically what happened at 5:00 in the white whoit. >> the president was made aware of the developments throughout the evening and days ensuing and i am not what your question is specifically. >> they are not independent investigation. carny pointed to the review and public time line that laid out military response and a similar briefing by intelligence officials emergency response. >> next week they are scheduled with state department patrick kennedy who is charged with overseeing staff. and eric bonswell who is charged with security in benghazi. and while they emphasizes what was known in benghazi. all will be close except one. that was congress' call. >> my understanding that they wanted to have a conversation with intelience recording. >> classified documents remained available in a classified meeting room on capitol hill. they want more clarity. >>

it to us, but at this point no plans for us to sort of get a peek inside that room and listen in on that conversation. although we hope that there will be some kind of a readout to give us some indication as to what the two politicians discussed. >> you know, dan, oftentimes people say these meetings are just to make nice or to have a good photo op. in this particular case, not unlike other cases, there's talk about the potential of a position, maybe a high-level position, maybe cabinet level, in the obama administration for governor romney. and that's not so far off base. i mean, we have plenty of history to show that politicians have crossed over. just take a look at your screen. this is a great example of former presidents who have reached across the aisle to take high-level members of the opposite party into their very close cabinet. so we have any idea if we might see one more of these screens added today with governor romney? >> you know, no, not as far as we're hearing from those close to governor romney, and, of course, aides here at the white house saying absolutely n
the election bring us any closer to working out a deal? >>reporter: the president has said it should be easier for him to work with republicans when they are no longer focused on blocking re-election but senate republican leader said preventing a second obama term was the top priority says the president didn't get a mandate last night, all he got was more time to do the job he promised in his first term. by waiting until the election is over the president left less than two months to is a deal to prevent tax hike and spending cuts that could push the country into another recession and the players have not changeed. obama is demanding an end to the upper income tax cuts and house speaker boehner is signals he will oppose that. republicans are demanding changes in entitlement programs and senate majority leader harry reid says he will not tinker with social security to get a deal. >>shepard: job creation? >>reporter: obama criticized mitt romney for claiming that he would create 12 million jobs over the next four years but not spelling out how. some economists think the country is primed to crea

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. republicans are trying to reinvent their image with minority voters. don't let them fool you. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> we don't win elections by insulting voters. >> republicans continue to insult voters. congressman luis gutierrez and michael steele on the republican chaos that plays right into the hands of the democrats. >>> progressives stay on offense. over the fiscal cliff. >> we're going to make some of our colleagues here an offer they can't refuse. >> republicans just keep laughing. >> it's a joke. a joke. >> e.j. dionne and ruth conif have the latest on the fight for the middle class. >>> richard wolffe on another disastrous day for senator john mccain. >>> and first, it was papa john's. now denny's is serving up a grandstand breakfast on obama care. good to have you with us tonight. the republican party has an identity crisis. african-american a
, extends everything for a year, and then gives us six months in which to reform entitlements and reform taxes and reduce the debt. are you kidding me?! push the pause button? we already pushed the pause button in 2011. these representatives were sent back to washington to get something done now. in fact, pushing the pause button could destroy america's credit rating and further harm the economy. mark zandi, chief economist at moody's analytics says, "if we can kick the can, at some point moody's is going to downgrade. you're going to create more instability in the financial markets." zandi said it would be better to do nothing than to create an extension. republicans and some centrist democrats are definitely not getting the message. when the president won re-election, he said his number one priority is to reach an economic deal by reaching across both sides of the aisle. >> i want to be clear. i'm not wedding to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced.
, and police files used as confetti at the macy's day parade. how can it happen? is our security now at risk? >> illinois has the worst budget deficit in the nation and why is the state spending millions of taxpayer dollars on table for prisoners. >> and eco friendly zip lines, maybe they want them to watch "fox & friends" in prison, have you ever thought of that. >> dave: amen, there's some viewers, baby. >> clayton: "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ . >> alisyn:. >> alisyn: good morning, everybody, thanks for joining us bright and early on this sunday morning, we have quite a show for you, including the ongoing debate that dave briggs launched yesterday about yoga pants and we invite you to weigh in this morning. >> clayton: you're still leading this fight and championing this fight. >> alisyn: he's made it a platform. >> dave: i may run for the white house based on yoga pants. there's both good and bad and we will delve into this later on and look, common ground. it's unlike politics, there is some common ground between the two extremes. >> clayton: of yoga pants afficianados. >> alis
about the u.s. economy. i think consumers are where it's at. we just got to get over this fiscal cliff thing. >> jonathan capehart. >> i learned president morsi of egypt is fanatical about "planet of the apes." >> that is really all you need to know. jonathan, thank you so much. rana, steve, michael and everybody, thank you for watching today. if it's "way too early," it's "morning joe." chuck todd is next with "the daily rundown." >>> together again. mitt romney makes his way to the white house. it's not exactly the way he wanted to get there. but can something constructive come out of a private lunch between president obama and the man he defeated just three weeks ago? that's right. that was just three weeks ago. >>> also this morning, a deep dive into america's longest war. look into lessons learned and the sacrifices made by troops at one combat outpost. tell us about what's been accomplished and what's not in more than a decade of fighting. as the country wakes up obsessed with numbers and winners, for the lottery, that, we've got a very important update on the election night numb
. >> this is a path to take us down to total socialism and totalitarianism. >> the president seemed to play the role of professor in chief. >> he seems to lack that emotional bit when he's talking about the politics. he's very wonkish which surprises people because on the campaign trail, he seemed to be a different person. >> in a final blow, a crucial democratic seat passed into republican hands. >> ted kennedy's leaving the u.s. senate, which he had occupied for 46 years until his dealt last year has been won by a republican. >> the president had lost the votes he needed to pass health care reform. his staff told him to scale back the bill or pause and return to it later. >> one of his senior advisers said to him, you know, mr. president, unless you're feeling lucky, i just don't think this is going to happen. >> i was making a joke to him. i said, look, my name is barack obama and i live in the oval office so i've got to be lucky. we felt although we knew it was going to be difficult to try to get it done. >> by all accounts when politics had seemed lost -- >> it is the right thing to do and that
you both. we'll have you both back very soon. that does it for us today. make sure to join us tomorrow. right now it's time for "squawk on the street." >> whether i earned your vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you. you have made me a better president. with your stories and your struggles, i return to the white house more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> president obama wins a second term in the white house but of course now the hard part begins. can he and congress agree on how to avoid the fiscal cliff just 54 days from now? good morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with melissa lee, jim cramer, david faber. as you can see once again, down triple digits. a lot of news out of europe today as attention turns to greece and parliamentary vote there regarding austerity measures later on. democrats gaining seats in the senate. republicans maintaining control of the house. >> the issues that were a tossup are now certainties. we'll get cramer's take on how to align your
